England: Premier League
Match start: 21:00 (GMT+1)
The 13th round of English Premier League will start with the Friday match of the Hammers and ex-champion Leicester. Now both teams take the bottom of the tournament bracket and are trying to save their places at elite division.
Why this forthcoming nettle that will be held at Olympic Stadium in London is interesting for the wide range of football fans? The matter is that recently have been dome some staff changes of coaching staff.
West Ham (the head coach David Moyes)
The current season the Hammers have begun under the coach Slaven Bilić. But after the fiasco that happened in November during the home match against Liverpool (1:4) Croatian specialist was dismissed and the new coach became David Moyes who is known by his terrible work at Manchester United and Sunderland.
We doubt that this change made the fans of the Hammers happy. Now the Scottish coach is hate figure in England as well as Louis van Gaal and André Villas-Boas. By the way, Their first match under the supervision of David Moyes the Hammers lost to Watford (0:2).
Leicester (the head coach Claude Puel)
And absolutely different impression is made by the current game of the Foxes under the supervision of Claude Puel. As after the assignment of the French specialist the champion of England 2016 has changed dramatically and started to demonstrate absolutely different level of game. As a result during the four last matches under the supervision of Claude Puel earned 7 points and lost only the last match against Manchester City (0:2).
It is obvious that the last defeat of the hosts of King Power doesn’t need to be explained as the team of Josep Guardiola is now practically unbeaten. In general, the game of Leicester impresses the fans and that is why, the team is considered to be the favorite. And this fact is proved by the bookmakers’ opinion:
West Ham – 2.70, draw – 3.30, Leicester – 2.63;
